About me & my work:

I am a lawyer and company director. I am currently a non-executive Director on a number of boards including the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), Spark Infrastructure Ltd, South Australian Power Networks (formerly ETSA Utilities), Audio Pixel Holdings Ltd, the Australian Himalayan Foundation, Football Federation of Australia (FFA), and the Local Organising Committee Asian Cup 2015 Limited.

I am also an ambassador for the Peres Centre for Peace, and a Patron of SportsConnect.

I am the immediate past Chairman of ANZ Trustees Ltd, South Australian Film Corporation, Adelaide Film festival, and the Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education (FARE).

In 2008 my daughter Nikki and I made history when we became the first-ever mother-daughter team to reach the summit of the world's tallest mountain, Mt Everest. Upon reaching the top, we also became the first mother-daughter duo to complete the Seven Summits: the highest peaks of every continent in the world.

In April 2013, I became the 31st person in the world (and first Aussie woman) to complete The Explorer's Grand Slam, which comprises the Seven Summits plus skiing to the North and South Poles.

In 2008, my daughter Nikki and I were awarded the Australian National Geographic "Spirit of Australia" award.

I was awarded the Order of Australia (AO) in the Australia Day Honours in January 2009.

I have a BComm./ LLB (Bachelor of Laws and Bachelor of Commerce) from the University of NSW.
